"With its stunning, intensely black appearance tinged with bright crimson, the Clos de Los Siete 2012 unleashes its complex, delicious bouquet. Pronounced ripe fruit aromas reflect the ripeness of the grapes, while spicy, peppery notes reveal Malbec as the unquestionable star of this blend. Roasted notes reveal well-handled oak-ageing. Generous and well-balanced on the palate, concentrated, yet silky, velvet tannins bring elegant structure to the wine. A challenge that has certainly paid off! The concentrated, lingering and savoury finish emphasises the great potential of this wine literally crying out to express its true character." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Clos de los Siete is based in Argentina's Uco Valley and is assembled personally by Rolland from the cooperative effort of four different bodegas: Monteviejo, Cuvelier los Andes, DiamAndes and Bodega Rolland. In 2012, the Bordeaux-style blend included a high proportion of Malbec and features a rich, impressively fruity core packed with blueberry and blackcurrant notes. Layers of dark chocolate shavings, black tea, tobacco, and cedar unfurl on the dense palate while notes of spice stipple the dark fruit. With a lingering finish, you'll soon be coming back for another sip!
"Bright red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate. Dense, creamy and sweet, conveying an impression of elegance for all its volume. A very sweet, spicy blend with harmonious tannins and noteworthy length. Year after year, this wine from Michel Rolland is a terrific value. Drinking window: 2015 - 2022." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

"A red with plenty of ripe fruit and hints of shaved chocolate and walnut character. Full body, velvety tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Drink now." —

"Blueberry and cardamom aromas rank as exotic and attractive. This has a rich, jammy, deep body that's easy on the palate. Flavors of blackberry, caramel and chocolate are rich and ripe, as is the finish, which has a meaty texture and a touch of youthful heat." —Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
